Full Description


Biotechnology, and the benefits it can offer are playing an increasingly important role in all areas of clinical rehabilitation. However, it is still often regarded with suspicion and mistrust by many clinicians and their patients. "Enabling Technologies: Body Image and Body Function" is intended to help all those who encounter biological innovations within their clinical practice to attain a better understanding of their potential, and the benefits they can offer for their patients. Compiled and edited by two of the leading researchers in the field of rehabilitation technology, the book brings together 29 contributions from experts in major centres in 10 different countries. "Enabling Technologies: Body Image and Body Function" presents the full range of technological developments, which may be used in the field of clinical rehabilitation, and explains and demystifies their practical relevance for the non-specialist clinician. In doing so, it makes an important contribution to this fast developing field.It will provide an invaluable source of reference to all those working in the field of rehabilitation who encounter biotechnological innovations as part of their professional practice. Clinicians who understand the potential of the innovations biotechnology can offer, and are able to deal with the emotional responses of the patients will be well placed to achieve faster and more effective rehabilitation for those in their care. This book can help them to do this.
